Tim Hortons Smile Campaign to Support SMH Redevelopment

There’s another reason to smile this month, as Tim Hortons’ iconic Smile Cookie week returns from September 13-19, supporting over 600 charities.

The Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF) is proud to announce that the SMHF has been selected as a recipient of this fundraiser, with funds from Smile Cookies sold at both Alliston locations supporting the hospital’s Redevelopment.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the iconic chocolate chunk cookies topped with pink and blue icing drawing out a smile will be available at every participating Tim Hortons restaurant across the country.

Since its inception, the Smile Cookie campaign has raised more than $60 million for charities, hospitals and community programs across the country - with a record-breaking $11 million in 2020.

“We’re thrilled to be selected as a Tim Hortons Smile Cookie charity recipient for both Alliston locations. 100% of proceeds from these special cookies will support Stevenson Memorial Hospital’s Redevelopment and I can’t think of a more delicious way to support our community hospital,” says Mary Thomas, SMHF CEO.

This kind of support is critical as the demand on Stevenson Memorial Hospital (SMH) due to expanding populations, as well as the additional needs of the pandemic, have put immense pressure on this essential resource.

The time is now to support your community hospital and help make a revitalization a reality.

“Thank you to both Tim Hortons locations in Alliston who will be allocating the funds raised towards our much-needed redevelopment,” says Jody Levac, President & CEO, SMH. “Our hospital needs to expand and grow as our community has, and we need the support of our community behind us to help us reach our campaign goal and the local share of the funds required for the expansion.”

The SMHF launched its $43 Million Because of you, we can Capital Campaign in 2019 and nearly 60% of the goal has been raised to support Redevelopment and other critical needs. This is the largest and most significant campaign in the Foundation’s history.

To purchase Smile Cookies supporting Stevenson Memorial Hospital, visit the Alliston Tim Hortons at 3 Dunham Drive or 157 Young Street from Sept. 13-19.

Smile Cookies can be pre-ordered in bulk by contacting Whitney Sallach at wsallach@smhosp.on.ca.
